    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    This morning I'm at 95% would have gone to work but I took this as a vacation day a month ago. Like I said, 24 hr flu is my weak point. I get it and it hits me hard but Im back in 24-36 hours. No cough with this. Coworkers tell me to use those past 2 days as Covid days as they are not charged...

Cracks everywhere, one Minivan rad had clips molded into the tanks that the AC condenser...

    Universal wrench design

    OK, so a fail. I thought so but the one I posted had much more aggressive teeth than the youtube vid. I think for an older Mopar, My old 1/2-9/16 combo box end wrench will cover 80% of the exterior fasteners.

    4in vs 4.5in bolt circle rear axle

    No, There is more mechanical advantage on a 4.5 BC so there is less shear force on each stud. The farther you are out from the axle centerline, the less force is required to apply the same torque 24" breaker bar or a 5" stubby?

    Anyone have good luck with the USPS finding their lost auto parts in the system?

    Ill elaborate on that: ANY worker that cannot get fired for not performing their job becomes useless.

    Plastic for cooling sucks.

    plastic broke catostrophically , cast iron/Aluminum didnt. I guess that's my case. I can handle a leak, but not a break. On the 3 slants Ive had, none had AL necks. I guess they went the same as the AL blocks, to the corrosion graveyard.

    Plastic for cooling sucks.

    My 61 slant head has the original stat housing, cast iron. How many were made in 31 years that are still serviceable...all of them? I've just never had one explode on me like this one. Found the piece on top of the rad shroud 10 inches away.

    Cam recommendation needed

    My 400/451 was cammed by my friend so I dont know what he ended up with, IIRC it was a "Monster Motors" grind from some cam company, ~.600 [email protected] on 1.6 rockers. My intake was on the small side, a flat 383 Street Dominator for my heads, had to fit under the hood.

    Plastic for cooling sucks.

    Here's a new one. Not your ordinary plastic rad cracking and this was a complete blow out of a plastic stat housing on my SC400. WTH? Make these in metal! You can get these in cast AL for $99 AUS. Boy just idling waiting for Mom and he hears a pop and steam starts coming out of...

    S.O.S (relax...)

    An Airbus 380 is on its way across the Atlantic. It flies consistently at 800 km/h at 30,000 feet, when suddenly a Eurofighter with a Tempo Mach 2 appears. The pilot of the fighter jet slows down, flies alongside the Airbus and greets the pilot of the passenger plane by radio: "Airbus, boring...

    Cam gone flat? Here's a interesting video.

    I check the crown on every lifter I install Just put them feet together and note the (non)fit. I've never seen a new one not crowned. If the wear pattern on a pulled lifter is not circular, they are not rotating. I got a set of slants that are concave! Paint a strip on the top edge and when you...
